Game developers with a love for Unity and social networking just got a little present: Twitter has announced Unity support for its mobile software development toolkit. For most of us, this simply means looking forward to more mobile games with Twitter integration -- but for developers, it's an easy way to add crash reporting, mobile analytics and monetization tools to the development environment. Adding Fabric for games to Unity is apparently as simple as installing a plugin.
Twitter's Crashlytics reporting and Mopub advertising tools are definitely boons for developers, but at the end of the day, the social network giant's game is still social. If developers start using Fabric for its development tools, they're more likely to bake native Twitter integration into their apps -- a natural way of bringing more users to its platform.
